thank you guys for joining us. welcome to "late night with jimmy fallon," everybody. [ cheers and applause ] it's exciting for us too. well, the big story today is a lot of websites, including wikipedia and craigslist, decided to shut themselves down in order to protest the anti-piracy bill s.o.p.a. craigslist users were like, "great, now where am i going to find a couch, a job and a hooker all in one place?" [ laughter ] this is nice. last night president obama took michelle out to a steak restaurant for her birthday, marking it the first time in months the word "obama" and "well done" appeared in the same sentence. [ audience ohs ] very rare these days. [ cheers and applause ] very rare. >> steve: very rare? oh, my gosh. >> jimmy: did you guys hear about this? last week a british airways crew -- this is true -- a british airways crew mistakenly told passengers that their plane
was about to crash into the ocean. yeah. they made it even scarier announcement when the lady that said "your in-flight movie will be "yogi bear." [ laughter ] people like "what?!" yeah, the crew told passengers their plane was about to crash. but it turns out a flight attendant hit the wrong button. i don't know what's worse, getting lied to about crashing into the ocean or knowing it happens so often there's a button for it. [ laughter ] you can't just say that? some election news. during a republican debate this week, mitt romney said he's been elk hunting but he's not, quote, "a serious hunter." although, you know who does consider romney a serious hunter? the elk. [ laughter ] shot my brother. [ laughter ] [ gun shot ] you're just joking? listen to this, customers at a movie theater demanded a refund because they didn't realize the movie "the artist" was a silent film. [ laughter ] of course, it didn't help when
the manager was like -- [ silent film music ] ♪ [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] i was just reading about this, a group of scientists around the world are teaming up to take the first-ever picture of a black hole. it's really annoying for all the comets passing by because it's like, "did you take it yet? [ laughter ] are you close or should i just -- i just wanna -- i'm so sorry, i've just -- sorry. sorry. i'm just going." [ laughter ] and finally, a woman in california was arrested at mcdonald's after she offered an employee sexual favors in exchange for chicken mcnuggets. [ laughter ] yeah, in fact, i hear she even offered the guy a mcrub. [ laughter and groans ] the employee was like, "no thanks but i will take a big wac!" [ laughter ]

[ cheers and applause ] people love him. gonna be a good show. hey, anyone that knows me knows that i'm a people person. i'm also a big animal lover. and the one thing i've noticed is that people and animals are very different in a lot of ways. in fact, they can often be in the exact same setting and be thinking two totally different things.
what kinds of things? let's find out in a segment we call "animal thoughts." ♪ animal, animal, animal animal thoughts ♪ [ applause ] >> jimmy: guys, i'm gonna let you in on a little secret. i'm basically a mind reader. i can tell what people and animals are thinking just by the looking at the way they interact with each other. for example, take a look at this. now, here's a picture of a guy with a little parakeet on his shoulder. it's very cute. i can tell just by looking at the guy that he's thinking, "polly want a cracker?" and the bird's thinking very different. she's thinking, "gary want a breath mint?" [ laughter ] you see? two totally, very different things. like here's another example. it's a woman smiling and posing for a nice picture. and there's -- there's a panda there, too. i can tell the woman's thinking, "this headshot is going to look great." and the panda's thinking, "photo bomb!" [ laughter ] he got her. he got her good. >> steve: he did. >> jimmy: here's another one.
this is a woman wading through a river with her trusty horse. the woman's thinking, "it's a good thing i brought this pool noodle." and the horse is thinking, "that's not a pool noodle." [ laughter ] >> steve: you knew just by looking at those, too. >> jimmy: i don't know -- i just -- i think i can see what they're both thinking. >> steve: wow. you're like dr. doolittle. >> jimmy: yeah. like, check this out. this is a woman posing with a deer. she's thinking, "this will look great on my facebook wall." meanwhile, the deer is thinking, "i hate the new timeline feature." [ laughter ] it takes some getting used to. i gotta be honest, i'm with the deer. yeah. i got the deer's side on that. let's move on. here's a woman grooming a cute, little dog. she's thinking, "you're all done, daisy." while the dog's thinking, "you know what, just give me a brazilian. tonight's my anniversary." [ laughter ] sounds like a special occasion. >> steve: wow. they're more alike than we think. >> jimmy: yeah. next we have a kid slapping his dog's paw. seems like a well-trained dog. the kid is thinking, "great job, max, you learned how to high-five."
while the dog is thinking, "if he tries to teach me how to tebow, i'm just going to run into oncoming traffic." [ laughter ] you have to draw the line somewhere. >> steve: yeah. even dogs. [ applause ] >> jimmy: he doesn't care about football. >> steve: he has his dignity. yeah. >> jimmy: this one -- i don't know what to make of this one. >> steve: oh my god. guy's leeping in bed next to an elk. it's pretty weird. but he's thinking, "man, i had a lot to drink last night." [ laughter ] and the elk is thinking, "we didn't buck, did we?" [ laughter ] always drink in moderation, you guys. here's a nice picture, here. this is an old woman, resting her head on her canine companion. >> steve: oh. >> jimmy: she's thinking, "we love watching movies together." and the dog's thinking, "that's how 'marley and me' ends?" [ laughter ] he looks pretty -- he looks pretty shocked. >> steve: his eyes are bugged out. he's like stunned. >> jimmy: yeah, he was pretty shocked. yeah, he was stunned. >> steve: he'd never seen that movie. >> jimmy: here we have -- this is a nice picture -- it's a female hiker spotting a little seagull nearby.
she's thinking, "hey there, little birdie, how are you?" and the seagull's thinking, "i'm kind of bummed out. i come up here sometimes." [ laughter ] >> steve: was he bummed out that she was there? >> jimmy: i don't know. i can't get into -- that deep into it. i'm just seeing what i can. [ laughter ] >> steve: sorry. >> jimmy: here's the last one, here. we see a little kid holding his dog up to look in the fridge. that's nice. the kid's thinking, "i smell something good." and the dog's thinking, "me too. is another dog's butt in there?" [ laughter ] probably not. that's all the "animal thoughts" we have tonight for you guys. [ cheers and applause ] stick around. we'll be right back with more on "late night"!
